I am saddened to hear of Jerry's passing. I worked with Jerry for many years serving veterans. I have never known a more honorable, trustworthy and patriotic American.

I pray that God will grant his family that peace that exceeds all understanding until we all meet again. God bless all family and friends.

He was a very sweet man with a great smile, could always make me smile everytime I saw him. I'm going to miss him a great deal.
